That was what I salivated over, anyway-- friend's order of gnocchi. The ploughman's platter was pretty generous with mean and cheese, too. Coffee brilliant.

We always head here when in Melbourne. If you can nab a table in the front porch area, it's great on a winter's day. Nice location, friendly staff and very good food. Oh, and an excellent wine list.

Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
